    I am posting this here as this is not a question relating to potential turtle food (i don't think). leaves.jpg

    I live in N Central Arkansas and have seen a few of these vines in years past, but suddenly there is an explosion of them all over one area and i am just curious what it is.
    Seems to be ipomoea of some sort, but all the pix i can find fail to show the purplish indentations.
    Soon there should be flowers to help the identification...

    There are LOTs of heart-shaped vines of various species that look quite similar, except for purple part.

    Looks a lot like an invasive we have here in Florida. Air Potato (Dioscorea bulbifera) a vine that grow airborne tubers. Might not be the same but maybe same family. Don’t know if toxic or not.
